St. Patrick’s Day Dessert: Matcha Pudding

You know when you meet someone and you automatically feel like you’ve been friends for the entirety of your life? That’s what happened to me the minute I met Kaylee. She’s a woman after my own heart – she has talent seeping out of her pores – and I’m so excited to have her on board here at L&L headquarters. She’ll be popping in once a month to share some of her incredible recipes. Enjoy!


Hello again Lark & Linen readers, Kaylee here from The Blondielocks. I’m thrilled to be back again this month with yet another holiday inspired recipe (an ongoing theme it seems) but I just couldn’t help it. You could definitely say I’m that girl when it comes to holidays. No matter how big or small the holiday, I find myself making excuses to bake or DIY festive inspired goodies. St. Patrick’s day has always been a tricky one for me to come up with recipes and DIY projects, but this year seemed easier than others since my fiancé has been on a matcha kick as of late. I’d never thought to incorporate matcha into a dessert, but after seeing my fiancé drinking his green latté every day I had a bit of an epiphany. These puddings are so quick and easy to pull together for a St. Patrick’s Day dessert and if you’re a fan of matcha then they’ll definitely be a hit. Just be sure to make the puddings ahead of time so that they’ll have time set before St. Patrick’s Day party guest arrive. Happy St. Patrick’s day friends!

PS: How cute are these little four leaf clover garnishes!? They take seconds to put together and add such a fun festive touch.

  1. 2 tsp matcha powder
  2. ¼ cup sugar
  3. 1 ½ cups milk
  4. 2 ¼ tsp gelatin powder
  5. 2 tbsp. water
  1. Add gelatin and water into a small bowl or ramekin, mix to combine and set aside for it to bloom.
  2. Add milk and sugar into a small saucepan over medium heat, whisking frequently. Heat the mixture and remove it from the stove just before it comes to a boil.
  3. Sieve in the matcha powder and whisk until combined
  4. Add gelatin to the mixture and stir until it is fully dissolved.
  5. Pour mixture into small glass jars or ramekins and place them in the fridge for at least 12 hours, or overnight.
  6. Garnish with fresh whipped cream, a small dusting of matcha powder and a cute four leaf clover
  7. For the four leaf clover garnish, I simply picked up foam sticker 4 leaf clovers at the local dollar store and stuck them onto toothpicks. They stuck pretty well on their own but you can also tape or hot glue gun them so that they’re fully secure.
